Services

KEE advises its clients on all aspects of commercial and business related law.
You can find further information on our areas of legal service below. 

Corporate / M&A

KEE advises clients on all legal questions concerning corporate law, particularly in connection with private limited partnerships (Kommanditgesellschaften, KG), limited liability companies (Gesellschaften mit beschränkter Haftung, GmbH)  and limited partnerships with a limited liability company as general partners (GmbH & Co. KG).

We provide support in founding partnerships or companies, transferring interest or shares, corporate actions and all questions of day-to-day corporate concerns. We draft

  • founding documents
  • shareholder’s resolutions and agreements
  • share purchase agreements and joint venture agreements

Our services are interdisciplinary and we can, by request, involve or recommend suitable tax consultants.

Finance, Restructuring

As a rule, large scale projects or the acquisition of companies will require the involvement of banks for credit capital. KEE supports and advises lenders and borrowers where the legal structuring and drafting of project and acquisition finance facilities is concerned.

From the development of the term sheet onwards, we accompany you throughout the financing process (due diligence, facility documentation) up until the drawdown of the facilities. We are at your service where restructuring the facilities becomes necessary or where borrower’s insolvency threatens.

Among our clients are not only notable commercial banks, but also project developers, mid-market enterprises and private equity companies.

Real Estate

KEE advises property owners, developers and lending banks on legal issues concerning real estate. This includes the sale and acquisition of built and unbuilt properties via share deals or land purchase agreements, concluding lease and rent agreements as well as all issues concerning the land register such as the provision of easements and mortgages.

We draft and negotiate property and asset management agreements and provide support where you have operational questions. We are well acquainted with the peculiarities of real estate transaction, particularly where the interfaces to subjects such as tax and property valuation are concerned and are well-positioned to cooperate with your tax consultants.

Should you require it, we are happy to recommend suitable tax consultants. Specifically for institutional investors we offer support concerning regulatory issues. 

Contract Law

Modern business life is characterized by a multiplicity of different types of contract. But there are always situations that call for the development of a fundamentally new type of contract. Whether you need us to review a standard contract, to revise your standard terms and conditions or whether you require a tailor-made solution for a particular contractual situation: KEE can support you in working out the commercial and legal issues that matter for you, perfecting a appropriate contractual form and successfully pushing those terms in contract negotiations. 

Litigation

Litigation as a rule is costly, drawn out and fraught with uncertainty. The best litigation is usually the case that is not brought to court. Our approach to disputes is to aim to negotiate an agreement between the parties at an early stage and before the matter goes to court.

If all efforts fail, however, we can offer you the best possible representation in court, whether you are enforcing a claim or whether you are defending yourself against claim. This includes representation in international and national arbitration tribunals. Similarly, KEE’s partners are available to act as arbitrators where a neutral, discreet and competent authority is sought to settle a dispute by arbitration.

Renewable Energy

Advising on renewable energy projects has been a traditional focus of our firm. In particular, KEE advises on sale/purchase transactions and project finance facilities in this area. Advising project developers on the realization of power plant projects has also become an increasingly relevant field for us.

Many power plants are prone to defects with progressing operational life leading to disputes between owners, operators and builders. KEE has a great deal of experience in dealing with the enforcement – and defense against – warranty and guarantee claims, e.g. with degrading solar modules.
